Segway company owner dies riding two-wheeled machine off cliff

I suppose we can nitpick over just what it means when someone goes over a cliff with a segway that he'd been recently seen riding, but to me, that's about the same thing as saying he drove his segway over a cliff.

On the other hand, perhaps he simply fell, and someone threw the segway in after him. Or maybe he dove in after his segway drove _itself_ over the cliff in a vain attempt to save it from irreparable damage. So many possibilities...
